sysvinit (2.84-2woody1) woody-proposed-updates; urgency=high

  * On some systems, /proc didn't get mounted because there is junk
    under the /proc mountpoint, makeing the system unuseable. Fixed
    by an extra check. Also warns the user. (closes: #134316)
  * Fix typos in README.runlevels (closes: #94745)
  * Update /etc/init.d/skeleton to comply with policy (closes: #96711,#121947)
  * On some systems "init" might show up as "ini" in "ps" output
    due to a off-by-one error in maxproclen calculation (closes: #132870)
  * Fix typo (SBM - SMB) in /etc/init.d/mountnfs.sh (closes: #139251)
  * Fix typo in debian/rules that installed prerm as preinst, and
    preinst not at all (closes: #148174)
  * Up severity to "high" since any program with write access to
    /var/run/utmp (group utmp) could trick the "shutdown" command into
    corrupting random files (note that currently there are no known
    exploits for setgroup-id-utmp programs).

sysvinit (2.84-2) unstable; urgency=low

  * modernized inittab manpage.
  * Don't shut down IDE drives on halt if RAID is active (closes: #127635)
  * Add /etc/init.d/umountnfs.sh to conffiles (closes: #122190)
  * Only mount /proc in checkroot.sh if it's not mounted yet. This
    gives earlier scripts the possibility to mount /proc and just
    leave it mounted.
  * Set maxproclen correctly on re-exec. Make sure setproctitle() leaves
    at least two zeroes at the end of the argv array.
  * Don't put IDE drives into standby mode at halt time if RAID is still
    active, since the RAID halt/reboot/poweroff codepath in the kernel
    still needs to flush the RAID metadata to disk. (closes: #127635)
  * Use 'dmesg -s 65536' when writing /var/log/dmesg (closes: #128568)
  * Mount /proc only if not mounted yet, don't unmount (closes: #118977)
  * Commented out kb line in sample inittab (closes: #130126)
  * Update /etc/rcS.d/README (closes: #130225)
  * Don't duplicate options when remounting rootfs (closes: #119381)

 -- Miquel van Smoorenburg <miquels@cistron.nl>  Fri, 25 Jan 2002 14:02:17 +0100

sysvinit (2.84-1) unstable; urgency=high

  * Don't use /etc/initlvl interface for telinit; only use /dev/initctl,
    and give a clear error when that fails (closes: #116829)
  * Add -i/--init command line flag to init - this tells init
    'behave as system init even if you're not PID#1'. Useful for
    testing in chroot/jail type environments.
  * Use --print-installation-architecture in postinst instead of
    --print-architecture.

 -- Miquel van Smoorenburg <miquels@cistron.nl>  Tue, 27 Nov 2001 13:08:45 +0100

sysvinit (2.83-3) unstable; urgency=low

  * Don't disable write caching on IDE disks before unmounting file
    systems, since that flag is kept over reboot. Instead the
    halt program now has an extra -h switch that makes it send all
    IDE drives a "standby" command that as a side effect flushes
    the write-cache. That flag is used in /etc/init.d/halt

 -- Miquel van Smoorenburg <miquels@cistron.nl>  Wed,  7 Nov 2001 16:11:28 +0100

sysvinit (2.83-2) unstable; urgency=high

  * Only disable write caching on disks, not on all IDE devices
    such as CDROMs (closes: #115354,#115822,#117390)
  * Mount verbose, except for proc (closes: #115362,#111481)
  * Add comments about not using tty7 to default inittab (closes: #117618)
  * Install inittab.$(arch) as default inittab in the installation
    process, if it exists. Add inittab.s390 (closes: #113495)
  * Appears that the 'shutdown to fast' bug is closed by
    turning off the IDE write cache at shutdown (closes: #110804).
    Only thing is that this should probably get in the kernel
    somehow, as it's really a kernel bug.

 -- Miquel van Smoorenburg <miquels@cistron.nl>  Thu,  1 Nov 2001 13:21:58 +0100

sysvinit (2.83-1) unstable; urgency=high

  * Upstream fix: race condiction in wait() [Andrea Arcangeli]
  * shutdown.allow processing broke due to typo (closes: #111199)
  * Call closelog() after openlog()/syslog() since recent libc's
    keep the logging fd open and that is fd#0 aka stdin (closes: #111901)
  * Typo in shutdown manpage fixed (closes: #112815)
  * Don't remove .journal file during tmp cleanup (closes: #113564)
  * Don't use '-v' flag to mount in mountall.sh (closes: 111481)
  * Fix policy reference in README (closes: #97925)
  * Treat 'ncpfs' as remote filesystem (closes: #94510)
  * Don't do fsck -C if $TERM is unset or set to dumb|network|unknown.
    Also don't do fsck -C if `uname -m` = s390
  * Turn off write-caching on all IDE disks prior to unmounting
    filesystems. On some systems that poweroff on halt the system
    powers off before the IDE disk write cache is flushed. You do
    need to have hdparm installed to get this to work.

 -- Miquel van Smoorenburg <miquels@cistron.nl>  Fri,  5 Oct 2001 14:37:42 +0200

sysvinit (2.82-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream version.
  * Now prints out correct version at startup (closes: #109558,#108377)
  * Versioned replaces (dpkg << 1.9.17) (closes: #109557)
  * Mount all proc filesystems in fstab (closes: #108109)
  * Fix spelling of initttab in init(8) (closes: #100659)
  * Clarify "usage" message of update-rc.d (closes: #108391)

 -- Miquel van Smoorenburg <miquels@cistron.nl>  Thu, 23 Aug 2001 17:50:03 +0200

sysvinit (2.81-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream version.
  * 'pidof' now finds processes that do weird stuff with their
    name in 'ps' listings (i.e. use setproctitle()) (closes: #67021)

 -- Miquel van Smoorenburg <miquels@cistron.nl>  Tue, 31 Jul 2001 18:25:11 +0200

sysvinit (2.80-3) unstable; urgency=high

  * The diff that dpkg-source builds doesn't include empty directories
    so we now create them in the debian/rules file.
  * Make /etc/init.d/* executable (closes: #107018)

 -- Miquel van Smoorenburg <miquels@cistron.nl>  Mon, 30 Jul 2001 16:15:29 +0200

sysvinit (2.80-2) unstable; urgency=high

  * Use install -m 755 instead of copy for the pre/post install/remove
    scripts (closes: #106730)

 -- Miquel van Smoorenburg <miquels@cistron.nl>  Thu, 26 Jul 2001 22:46:52 +0200

sysvinit (2.80-1) unstable; urgency=medium

  * New upstream version
  * Don't prevent raid-rebuild from activating swap on 2.4 and up
    (closes: #80446, #83118).
  * Document IO redirection in wall manpage (closes: #79491)
  * Use -x in skeleton file (closes: #67143)
  * Update README (closes: #85650)
  * Unmount tmpfs before turining off swap (closes: #84782)
  * Fix check for passno in checkroot.sh (closes:  #84035)
  * Make sure scripts exit with code 0 if succesful (closes: #83410)
  * Don't try to set hostname if /etc/hostname is not present (closes: #81711)
  * Mount /proc early and keep it mounted (closes: #75936, #71433, #88352)
  * Fix init.8 manpage (closes:  #75268)
  * Small fix to rc script (closes: #72859)
  * Optimize /tmp cleaning (closes: #71176)
  * Check for update before executing it in "single" script
    (closes: #68983, #103144)
  * Build package with SHELL=/bin/bash (closes: #68623)
  * Fix typo in halt(8) manpage (closes:  #67875)
  * Check time argument of shutdown(8) for correctness (closes: #67825)
  * Don't chown ptys on devfs system (closes: #88300)
  * Check for stale sessions in last(1) (Chris Wolf <cwolf@starclass.com>)
  * Include invoke-rc.d (closes: #94140). Conflicts: file-rc (<= 0.5.7)
  * Move random-seed to /var/lib/urandom (closes: #102216)
  * Moved update-rc.d from dpkg to sysvinit
  * Didn't include the UPS changes yet, that will come in a later
    2.80-xyz version -- needed to get 2.80 out of the door first.

 -- Miquel van Smoorenburg <miquels@cistron.nl>  Thu, 26 Jul 2001 14:07:03 +0200

sysvinit (2.78-4) frozen unstable; urgency=high

  * In /etc/init.d/checkroot.sh, change 10>&0 into 9>&0, since
    ash doesn't handle file descriptors > 9

 -- Miquel van Smoorenburg <miquels@cistron.nl>  Sun, 25 Jun 2000 14:03:04 +0200

sysvinit (2.78-3) frozen unstable; urgency=medium

  * Fix critical bug #61227: Kernel panic/filesystem corruption if
    swapping started while software RAID resyncing. As this doesn't
    matter on 99% of the installs out there it's up to the release
    manager to decide whether to put this in potato or not (closes: #61227).
  * Fix up /etc/init.d/README paths (closes: #58935,#58595)
  * Don't check root filesystem if "pass" in /etc/fstab is 0 (closes: #65125)
  * Unmount remote filesystems before network is shut down
    (closes: #60898,#61907). This also was a release-critical bug.
  * Changed "file systems" to "filesystems".

 -- Miquel van Smoorenburg <miquels@cistron.nl>  Tue,  6 Jun 2000 11:08:24 +0200

sysvinit (2.78-2) frozen unstable; urgency=high

  * Change "booting" to "reloading" message at reload

  * Treat SMB filesystems like NFS ones in mountall.sh and
    mountnfs.sh (fixes: #55414)
  * bootmisc.sh: do not remove files in /var/run that are newer
    than /etc/mtab. This should preserve pid files created before
    this script ran (closes: #49816)
  * Add "-z xxx" dummy command line argument (closes: #54717)

 -- Miquel van Smoorenburg <miquels@cistron.nl>  Fri, 11 Feb 2000 12:17:54 +0100

  * Add -C argument to fck (closes: #47914, #53335)
  * don't remove files in /var/run and /var/lock that are newer
    than /etc/mtab (may fix the dhcpcd problems)
  * Save kernel messages in /var/log/dmesg like RedHat does (closes: #47574)
  * Shutdown now calls sync before switching the runlevel to 0 or 6,
    or before unmounting filesystems if -n was used (closes: #46461)
  * Call umount with -f option to force NFS umounts (closes: #45715)
  * Fix TMPTIME documentation in rcS(5) (closes: #42570, #53224)

sysvinit (2.76-1) frozen unstable; urgency=high

  * Fix bug in check_pipe() which crashes init on the Alpha.
  * Re-upload since this should go into frozen too, ofcourse.
  * Changed the version number to 2.76, even though it's a minor
    upgrade. I want to release this version outside Debian too.

 -- Miquel van Smoorenburg <miquels@cistron.nl>  Tue,  3 Nov 1998 11:09:13 +0100

sysvinit (2.75-4) unstable; urgency=low

  * Change sulogin password buffer to 128 characters.
  * Don't print control characters in dowall.c
  * Try to open getenv ("CONSOLE"), /dev/console and /dev/tty0 in order.
    For backwards compatibility when you try to boot a 2.0.x kernel
    with a linux > 2.1.70 /dev/console device.
  * Change src/Makefile for non-debian systems (mainly, RedHat)
  * Try to create /dev/initctl if not present; check every time to see
    if the dev/ino of /dev/initctl has changed and re-open it. This should
    help devfs a bit.
  * Send SIGUSR1 to init at bootup to let it re-open /dev/initctl;
    again in support of devfs.
  * Rewrite of mountnfs.sh by Chris Ulrich <cdulrich@ucdavis.edu>

    #21616: sysvinit: sulogin thinks md5 root password is bad
    #21765: sysvinit: Typo in `killall5.c'
    #21775: sysvinit: sysvinit does not support MD5 hashed passwords

    #14785: sysvinit: non executable scripts from examples
    #17004: suggestion for raidtools

 -- Miquel van Smoorenburg <miquels@cistron.nl>  Mon, 16 Mar 1998 12:56:10 +0100

sysvinit (2.74-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Should compile with glibc 1.99 :)
  * Now confirms to policy manual 2.4.0.0
  * Change behaviour of reboot(1) and halt(1) so that the default when
    the runlevel can't be determined is to call shutdown.
  * Updated README and skeleton
  * Depends on new dpkg for the new update-rc.d
  * Added re-exec patch from Al Viro (21 Feb 1998):
        'U' flag added to telinit. It forces init to re-exec itself
        (passing its state through exec, certainly).
        May be useful for smoother (heh) upgrades.
        24 Feb 1998, AV:
        did_boot made global and added to state - thanks, Miquel.
        Yet another file descriptors leak - close state pipe if
        re_exec fails.
  * Now no longer contains mdutils.sh and conflicts with older mdutils
  * /etc/rc.S/*.sh scripts that use set -e or exit no longer stop
    the whole boot process.
  * Fixes:
    #16082: sysvinit: filesystems do not get unmounted properly on shutdown
    #16977: sysvinit: libc6 twice into Pre-Depends
    #17012: sysvinit: minor typo in install
    #17084: /etc/rcS does not use a start arg
    #17276: sysvinit: SIGUSR1 causes init to eat CPU
    #18541: sysvinit: ^C aborts entire rcS script

  * Hopefully fixes bug 16082, but we'll see..
  * Fixes bugs:
     #16622 sysvinit: should not depend on kbd
     #16807: /etc/init.d/mdutils.sh is started at bootup _and_ halt/reboot.

 -- Miquel van Smoorenburg <miquels@cistron.nl>  Thu,  8 Jan 1998 16:01:02 +0100

sysvinit (2.73-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * Use siginterrupt, now that system calls are restarted by default.
    Main symptom was that the sulogin timeout didn't work but there
    might have been more hidden problems.
  * Kill process immidiately if turned off in inittab
  * Fixed sulogin check on tty arg.
  * Use strerror() instead of sys_errlist
  * Chop up the reboot and halt scripts into seperate scripts. I had to
    take some liberties so they are called with the argument "stop" even
    though the scripts are Sxx scripts .. (start scripts in runlevel 0&6
    seem non-intuitive anyway)
  * wall now supports a '-n' option to suppress [most of] the banner.
    Debian doesn't use sysvinit's wall, but apparently Redhat does.
  * Add '-F' (forcefsck) option to shutdown
  * Depends on kbd_0.95-2 (or higher) package for /etc/rcS.d stuff.
  * Close and reopen /dev/initctl on SIGUSR1 (mainly for a /dev in ram)
  * Add FSCKFIX option to /etc/default/rcS
  * Wrote rcS.5 manpage describing /etc/default/rcS
  * Fixes bugs:
    #13435: Could shutdown provide a way to force fsck?
    #14108: sysvinit: sulogin's timeout does not work anymore
    #14179: sysvinit: /etc/init.d/(halt|reboot) need to call mdstop
    #14357: sysvinit: typo errors into script shells
    #15010: shutdown is too fast
    #15405: sysvinit: changelog uncompressed
    #15751: "sulogin -t <timeout>" does not time out
    #15758: Outdated reference in README
